We got married on July 2 of this year, and The Links at Union Vale is the place to have your wedding/reception. The value is something you cannot beat at any other location in the Hudson Valley. The food was incredible and the fantastic layout with a dance floor, separate bar area, and outdoor patio, made us and our guests extremely happy. The views for pictures is will have you overlooking rolling hills, a silo, and more! We continue to get compliments from family and friends on how amazing the food was, and how professional the staff was throughout the course of the evening. Both Rob and Doreen made themselves available to answer any questions that we had, and were able to come to the ballroom and site whenever we needed to check things out, and were able to schedule a tasting with no problems. As we approached the wedding date. Doreen was in constant communication with us, making sure everything was perfect for our day, and during the wedding she worked to make sure everything went smooth. Of all the things to worry and stress about during the process of wedding planning, our reception at the Links at Union Vale was truly not one of them. Thank you for helping making our day extra memorable!
The Links was the perfect venue for our perfect day. The room was set up beautifully, everyone found the food to be delicious, and the views (and pictures) were out of this world. We could not have asked for a more perfect setting and all the staff were extremely helpful. I highly recommend the Links!
We couldn't have picked a better place to have our wedding. They offered multiple packages which each included a different set of features and options. We were able to customize our wedding the way that we wanted to. Prices were reasonable considering how much that it included. Doreen and her staff were very attentive and responsive. The cocktail hour was a hit with our guests. The entrees came out in a timely fashion. Our guests raved about the food. We couldn't have asked for a better place to have our ceremony and reception. Thank you to all of the staff at The Links at Uniondale for making our special day that much better.
Overall experience was perfect. Very accommodating, affordable, and awesome staff and food. Packages include everything!!
Best in area !Reviewed on 7/09/2015 Nicole D
The links was amazing right from the first day we started working with them! Teri and Doreen are amazing and go way out of their way to make everything happen! The price beats everyone in the area! The views are to die for and growing up in upstate NY on a small family dairy farm it was perfect that the links is on all old farm land with silos in the distance !!! Our wedding was perfect and we the staff at the links helped make that happen! We ended up hiring most of the suggested professionals from the links too and are glad we did. Teri and Doreen have such connections and everyone works so well together !!!
Amazing!Reviewed on 7/19/2014 Alicia C
My husband and I were absolutely thrilled with our 4th of July wedding at The Links at Unionvale. We had a long engagement and Teri was there every step of the way. She was quick to respond to any communication, and she put us in touch with other vendors who were equally as easy to work with. For our wedding itself, we received so many compliments on every aspect of the day, from the delicious food, efficient service, and friendly staff. When I arrived at the venue, everything was set up perfectly. I had nothing to worry about, they took care of everything! They even worked with us right up until the time of our ceremony when we were threatened by rain. Doreen made sure everything ran smoothly. I can't say enough about the professionalism, kindness, and thoughtfulness of Teri, Doreen, and the staff. We were thrilled with our wedding, and would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for an event. Thank you!
Perfect wedding Venue. Beautiful interior, great food, great drinks and incredible serviceReviewed on 10/14/2013 Amanda R
My husband and I had our wedding at the Links at Union Vale in October of 2013. Throughout the wedding planning process, the event coordinator at the Links was incredibly helpful. She had suggestions for how to arrange the tables within the room, ways that we could arrange the dinner service to maximize dancing time, and great local vendors for guest accommodations, entertainment, photography, etc. Also, we had our ceremony at the Links. It was planned to be outdoors, as there is a beautiful outdoor ceremony space. We were lucky and had great weather, but we didn't have to worry because the Links had backup plans for how we could have the ceremony indoors in the event of bad weather. The staff there is prepared for any eventuality in terms of the weather, which is very helpful. The food provided by the Links was spectacular. The appetizers during cocktail hour included something for everyone, even the most selective eaters. And the Links was able to accommodate our guests who required vegetarian,vegan or gluten free meals and any other special dietary requirements. The selection of draft and bottled beers was excellent, which everyone in my big Irish family really appreciated. The bartenders were also very efficient and friendly. The same can be said of all the servers, who were quick, polite, attentive and all around excellent. This was great because no one had to wait for food while everyone else was already eating. Also, the Maitre'D coordinated with our DJ to ensure that dinner service did not interfere with the first dance, parent dances, or maid-of-honor and best man toasts. Everything was so well organized that the evening went very smoothly and we had no stress on our wedding day. Our guests had a fantastic time, enjoyed the food and drinks, and spent the whole evening dancing and conversing with friends and family. Wedding planning can be stressful, but working with the experienced and professional staff at the Links made the process easy. I would highly recommend the Links to anyone who wants a spectacular wedding at a very reasonable price.

We had a wonderful planning experience and wedding day experience. Teri is truly wonderful to work with. Also, Doreen was really great on the day of and even that week of last minute planning. They both go above and beyond to make sure things run smoothly.
The most wonderful day of our livesReviewed on 9/30/2011 Elizabeth T
The Links at Union Vale is truely the best place for a wedding. The scenery is breath taking and the staff so exceeds every expectation. Our guests were floored from begining to end, they still rant and rave about everything, especially the food which was superb. I cant say enough about this place. Terri is there at every step of the way, Doreen makes the night run perfectly and the wait and kitchen staff satisfy every culinary need you and your guests could ask for.
The best!Reviewed on 7/05/2011 Cailin M

Beautiful LocationReviewed on 3/04/2011 Cindi S
Terri was wonderful. Everything went smoothly. We got a lot of comments about how beautiful the location was and how good the food was. We had the ceremony there and the transition from ceremony to cocktails to reception was easy. Terri arranged it so we left at the end of the night in a golf cart. I highly recommend The Links!
Wonderful ExperienceReviewed on 11/09/2010 caitlan b
We were married on October 23, 2010, and had such a wonderful experience. Terri the General Manager took care of everything, and her attention to detail was impeccable. The Links even threw in our signature cocktail for free! I would definitely this venue!
Summer Wedding at the LinksReviewed on 10/12/2010 Bobbi Sue T
We loved the Links at Union Vale and would recommend it to any bride and groom! Teri, Doreen, and the entire team at the Links took great care of us from day one. The Links was the first phone call I made as a clueless and terrified bride-to-be! Teri talked me through everything that I needed to know to set up my first visit. The Links was also very flexible with package options to accommodate our budget. The food and staff were awesome. Because we were the only wedding that day we have the flexibility of choosing our own start and end time. But, the thing that I thought they did the best was allow us to personalize our wedding. We weren’t just another cookie-cutter wedding. They let us add personal touches throughout the day including things that resulted in extra work for their staff (like setting up a candy bar) and they did it all – with a smile and without any additional fees! Can’t beat that!!
Best Place for an Amazing Affordable WeddingReviewed on 9/22/2010 Jill P
We had our Sept 5th, 2010 wedding here. I can't say enough about how amazing the staff was. They made sure everything was PERFECT. Everyone went above and beyond here and it showed. We were on a tight budget, so we decided to have a Sunday wedding to save money. We picked Labor Day weekend so our guests would have the following day off. Best decision! Teri and Doreen are simply amazing and will make your day the best day of your life!
Amazing WeddingReviewed on 6/28/2010 Nina G
I got married here July 11th, 2009. Terri and the staff at the Links were amazing in every part of the wedding process. Terri is a very warm, bubbly and comforting person who is very experienced in her job. The site was absolutely beautiful. The grounds are amazing and we had TONS of beautiful shots outside. We also had a ceremony on site and it went so smoothly and perfectly. The staff were also amazing. People kept on talking about how they would go out to dance and they would come back to their napkin folded for them again. Little things like that go a long way. Oh also - ONE WEDDING AT A TIME!! They make it 100% YOUR day and you don't share it with anyone else! One last thing - the prices were very competitive and were quite affordable. But you don't sacrifice quality! The food was A-MAZE-ING! Loved it!!! I recommend this site for ANYONE looking for a medium sized wedding (I believe they cater to up to 175 although it gets a bit tight at that point) and especially if you want a ceremony on site as well. Perfect day!
